    The roadmap link at the top of https://docs.openclinica.com/https:/%2Fdocs.openclinica.com/release-notes/openclinica-3.3 (that's a weird URL!)
    shows a collection of issues that seem to be unrelated to 3.3, with strange release dates.

    Is there any information on the enhancements to the rules engine?

    Hi Colin,

    I updated the link roadmap link, sorry about that. It is
    You can see some info there now on the anticipated rules engine

    What are you hoping to see in the rules enhancements? It's a great time to
    share your ideas and wishlists :-)

    Over the next week there will be a lot of planning work and more detail
    will be added to the issues targeted for 3.3 as we do so.


    PS - I also fixed the funny release notes page URL, it is now

    Hi Cal,

    The one feature that would be most useful for us is to be able to conditionally call a user defined web service from a rule, passing some form attribute names and values as parameters and returning results into selected OC attributes.

    Hi Jamuna,

    Great news...congratulations!!

    it seems you have upgraded many pieces of the technological stack but again the RDBMS is left behind. PostgreSQL 8.4 is obsolete and version > 9.2 have many useful improvements from both programming and administration point of views.

    Do you plan to support OpenClinica on PostgreSQL 9.x in the near future? I would have thought that OC 3.2 with the upgrade of Java and Tomcat and the decommissioning of Oracle RDBMS would have been updated to the best Postgres.

    Hi Gabrielle,

    Agree with you to 100%. I think it does work with PG 9.x. I think I recall having seen something regarding this several months ago. Maybe Jamuna or Rob can give us more details.

    Hi Jamuna/Rob,
    can you give an answer to my question about PotgreSQL version upgrade. I agree with Krister, the application should work with PG 9.x but we need you "explicitly" support it.

    @ccollins about the rules enhancements, in addition to @ColinSutton 's suggestion (which would be awesome), some more ideas:
    - show or hide an event or crf based on an item value. e.g. conditional events or crfs, or different visits for different treatment arms.
    - schedule an event based on an item value (with a particular date e.g. visit_date_item+28 days, or _current_date+14 days, etc - I guess this also implies being able to do arithmetic in insert action destination values). This would help with scheduling.
    - show or hide an item or item group, or insert a value, anywhere in the subject casebook (at the moment we can only work within a single event repeat)
    - option to make email actions silent (no discrepancy message) - I think I saw this in jira already
    - use advanced/convenience operators like item IN (list), item NOT IN (list), substring(search,item), etc in rule expressions. Maybe there is some way to let us use java or javascript in rule expressions instead?

    I saw a comment from one of the Jamuna that he was actually using PG 9.2 but it was not stable at this time!??

    Se note below from Sep 2013

    Hi Aaron,

    What version of Postgres are you using? What version of OpenClinica? If you are using or earlier versions, then OpenClinica would work with Postgres 8.4. The current snapshot(development version) can be used on Postgres 9.2 ( but this is not stable release yet).

    Hope this helps

    Thank you Krister. I hope we will have some good news about this argument from Jamuna then.
